Lampoon /The Honesty Issue – Daniel King and Laura Morgan: human manipulation of raw materials

Photographer Daniel King and model Laura Morgan explore the earth and possibilities of the body in a series of shots from New Jersey to upstate NY

Daniel King shooting for Lampoon Issue 24

We styled the shoot together so that we weren’t limited by crew or time constraints. We spent days in the car, exploring new areas, from New Jersey to upstate NY. It was a complete collaboration between Laura and I. We were inspired by our own personal images, which a few were incorporated into the story to make it more global. Based on that we took the approach of focusing our attention to looking to the ground. I shot the project as if it was a short film, I treated each picture as a small scene. My main focus was to have Laura interacting with Earth; the limitations of that dictated the images.
